Elizabeth Radachi is a founding member of North Pointe Ballet and also serves as the Development Director for the company. Between these positions, she is excited to be able to help NPB expand its presence in the community as it works diligently to fulfill its mission to make ballet experiences accessible to everyone. Her favorite projects include NPB’s A Chance to Dance program and the sensory-friendly performances, both of which allow her to utilize skills acquired from her teaching degree as well as her professional work as an early childhood educator and Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst. 

As the child of a military family, Elizabeth’s training was provided by a number of teachers and influenced by a wide range of ballet styles with her most formative teachers being of the Balanchine and Vaganova methods. Elizabeth has been cast in a number of featured roles including Sugar Plum Fairy and the Chocolate variation in The Nutcracker, the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella, and the Lilac Fairy in The Sleeping Beauty, and has had several roles created on her over the course of her career. Perhaps the most thrilling part of her dance career is the opportunity to share the stage with her family. Elizabeth has had the privilege of performing alongside both her son, Alexander, who is an NPB youth cast member, and husband, Patrick, who is a member of the NPB band.
